Summary:

Twenty-six drabbles on the Gashlycrumb Tinies.

Summary:

From Angua’s office, with the door cracked, being a captain wasn’t all that different from being a sergeant.


The last of the things that I betaed this year. It looks at how being a Watchman first isn't necessarily the best thing for the ladies of the Watch, and the fact how to handle people who think you shouldn't do what you love.

Summary:


On a stage, in front of an audience, Howard Stark is charming.


Sitting next to you with a broad smile on his face, a twinkle in his eyes and a drink in one hand, he is ... not less charming, Nick decides.


I was a little dubious about the crossover aspect at first, but it definitely works. This is a lovely continuation of the BBaC 'verse (and the author borrowed my plea to let Gil keep on witching, so I'm a VERY happy camper!).

I love this story for what passes for family bonding among the Addamses and... for the cameo at the end. I may have squeaked.

Aaaaand that's all, unless and until I poke at Madness!
